We still find it hard to believe that Valve boss Gabe Newell stood there on Sony's stage at E3 and said the PlayStation 3 would be getting the best version of Portal 2 . But it happened. And it ain't that far off.
The developer confirmed to GameSpot that the highly anticipated EA offering had landed an official release date: February 9, 2011. It will release simultaneously on the PS3, Xbox 360, PC and Mac; it's a highly anticipated sequel that should be one of the first leading titles for next year. The original had players adopt the role of a human lab rat, Chell, who was able to utilize a special portal gun to create alternate routes to freedom. Along the way, you had to deal with seriously difficult tests posed by the insanely sadistic artificial intelligence known as GLaDOS. The concept was both original and engrossing, so we're expecting yet another step in the creative/innovative direction when Portal 2 hits store shelves. The only downside to this release date is that February also sees the launch of Killzone 3 , although it won't be until later in the month. And hey, KZ3 isn't anything like Valve's effort; don't think the first-person view puts these two in the exact same category.
So what's next, Valve? Gonna announce Left 4 Dead 3 for the PS3? Come on, you may as well.
